Elvis Ellis is a visual artist from Bristol, UK, currently living between Los Angeles and Berlin. Ellis works with a host of different mediums, including paint, photography, and video.
Exploration of Color and Texture
The ideology behind his work is to take something small as a point of conception and transform it into something much bigger. In his mind, each finished piece is a microcosm of a greater web of creation. Elvis sees painting as an affirmation that the possibilities for creative expression are infinite.
Elvis’ work is a combination of chaotic, unfettered freeform painting with an acute attention to detail, form, and gesture. He sees painting as an intuitive process, where the canvas becomes a space to project one's thoughts and to express oneself through a nonverbal language. Elvis’ colourful and dynamic prints and canvases refuse categorisation, but maintain heavy influences of the abstract and pop art movements.
